Winter is well underway as the local lakes freeze over here in the Madison area. It is the perfect time to brew a nice big cup of tea or hot chocolate and continue to write while these cold days linger on. Spring is only a few weeks away as we here in Continuing Studies continue to prep for this year’s Writers’ Institute. But let’s not rush this very productive time – be present, write and re-write during this time. We’ll see the robins soon enough.
